Welcome to German genealogy and history at GoAncestry! On these pages we are focusing on the State of Saarland. We are striving to provide information and guides that highlight emigration from Germany to North American regions. Many of our users are looking back towards their ancestors, but we also wish to help those in the homelands find the paths their descendants took after they departed.
We are willing to assist our homeland researchers in any way that we can. Our forums allow for interaction, and we can provide at least the basic translation service to help in our collaborations. If you are looking for your ancestors or descendants, please join us, we will work together if that will help.
Wir sind bereit, unsere Heimatforscher in jeder Weise zu unterstützen, die wir können. Unsere Foren ermöglichen die Interaktion, und wir können mindestens die grundlegende Übersetzung Service in unseren Kooperationen zu helfen. Wenn Sie nach Ihren Vorfahren oder Nachkommen suchen, bitte verbinden Sie uns, wir werden zusammenarbeiten, wenn das hilft.
Images of Germany
The table below lists the Constituent States of Germany and their respective Capitals. This is a good strating place when preparing for research about German ancestors. Though maps change over time and rulers as well, records of specific localities may still be found in the current State archives. Sometimes there are even challenges finding the right alignment of a record to the archive based upon the date the historical record was created. If the States are highlighted, they contain a link to subsequent focused information. If they are not highlighted, information has not been developed for that State. If there is currently no guide listed, you can consider volunteering some of your time or information. Please refer to the sitewide collaboration link above to share information or ask questions.
